For those who are planning for a cruise vacation, discover the best cruises in the Mediterranean that you can board on to.
The Best Cruises in the Mediterranean Sea
Around the shores of the Mediterranean Sea lie nations with great history and traditions – Spain, Italy, France, and so on. While there are a lot of ways to explore these great nations, nothing can beat the experience of boarding on a cruise ship, lazily lying on the deck chair and observing the overwhelming beauty of the sea and the cities engulfing the eyesight.
However, to make the most of the few days spent floating on the glorious Mediterranean Sea, you would have to pick the right cruise package with features and itineraries that suit your needs. So, let’s find out the best cruises in the Mediterranean offered by Costa Cruises below:
The Mediterranean from Barcelona
Spanning across 5 days and 4 nights, this particular itinerary departing from Barcelona offers the chance to explore the Mediterranean in a short, yet comfortable way. It includes day-out opportunities at the ports of Marseille and Genoa, offering the chance to explore these port cities with a great history. You would be boarding on the Costa Pacifica, a luxurious Costa cruise ship themed around music. If you prefer to spend a day enjoying the great city Marseilles, you can also choose to get on board from there at a later date.
The Mediterranean from Genoa
Departing on 23rd March 2020 from Genoa; the Costa Pacifica would welcome passengers on board for a 5-days long cruise in the Mediterranean Sea.

It also includes a full-day sailing through the open sea on the second day, offering the chance to enjoy the Mediterranean at its full glory.
